UN official: Enough evidence to prosecute Rumsfeld for war crimes
Monday, the United Nations Special Rapporteur on Torture Manfred Nowak told CNN's Rick Sanchez that the US has an "obligation" to investigate whether Bush administration officials ordered torture, adding that he believes that there is already enough evidence to prosecute former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld.

"We have clear evidence," he said. "In our report that we sent to the United Nations, we made it clear that former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld clearly authorized torture methods and he was told at that time by Alberto Mora, the legal council of the Navy, 'Mr. Secretary, what you are actual ordering here amounts to torture.' So, there we have the clear evidence that Mr. Rumsfeld knew what he was doing but, nevertheless, he ordered torture."

Another Drug Related Death?

Not from overdose, but from improper sale and distribution, and the issues that result when dealing in such contraband.
Doesn't have to be this way. Pot should be legalized and sold through proper channels. It's all about harm reduction. Why are we at war with a plant that, by it's own devices, harms no one? Obama, are you listening?

Torture Enthusiasts Sweating

Let's get the facts on who did what before we decide who will be held accountable. This isn't the first time that a country has been held accountable for war crimes. There are precedents and I suggest we use them.


GOPers, Worried About Torture Prosecutions, Delay Holder Vote

Republicans on the Senate Judiciary committee are delaying for up to a week a vote on Eric Holder's nomination to be Attorney General, with some saying they want more time to consider his record on torture.

John Cornyn, Republican of Texas, told Politico:

Part of my concern relates to his statements at the hearing with regard to torture and what his intentions are toward our intelligence personnel who were operating in good faith based on their understanding of what the law was.

Holder declared last week at the hearing that "water-boarding is torture."

Maybe, Going Forward, We Should Just Let Bernie Madoff Off?

We don't need the kind of people in our government who would approve, coverup or use torture. I have no problem with prosecuting ANYONE associated with the torture of toddler's testicles.
